Duncan Hines question here???? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
I use the Yellow SourCream Cake recipe from the Dr's Book. That is my signature cake! Everyone that's tasted it orders it every time! It always rising high & tastes wonderful!! Nice & thick, nice & moist & not crumbly. I think your problem cakegal might be that you are using buttermilk & sourcream. I only use yellow DH, 1/4 c milk, 1 c sourcream, 1/4 c sugar, 1/3 c oil, 1 t. vanilla, 4 large eggs. My cakes turn out perfect everytime! I bake either on 350* or 325* depending on the size of the cake.

WHITE ALMOND SOUR CREAM CAKE
1 BOXES WHITE CAKE MIX (I PREFER BETTY CROCKER)
1 CUPS FLOUR
1CUPS SUGAR
3/4 tsp SALT
1 1/3CUPS WATER ( I used buttermilk instead of water)
1/4 CUP VEGETABLE OIL
1 tsp REAL CLEAR VANILLA
1tsp ALMOND EXTRACT
1 CUPS (16 oz) SOURCREAM
4 LARGE EGG WHITES
So I should have used the water instead of buttermilk???
I followed this same recipe using the white box cake mix and that cake turned out beautifully.....
I will give it another go using DH...I always use DH and I would like to stick to using it....
tcturtleshell I will give your recipe a try....Do you use a cake extender with your DH?????
thanks,

icon_cool.gif Hey there Ms. Veejay...question...I bought some boxes of the Dream WHip to use...My question is, when you added the dream whip to the cake mix, did you just "add" it and simply followed the cake mix ingredients or did you use the dream whip ingredients on the whip box to the cake mix.

I read the directions for the dream whip and got myself confused. I want to try it for the wedding cake I have to do for the June 4th.

Let me know okie dokie....... icon_wink.gif

Hi Crashdummy, sorry I didn't see this sooner.

I just add the envelope of dream whip as powder along with my other ingredients.

1 box cake mix
1/3 cup veg. oil
1 env. dream whip
4 eggs
1 cup liquid (milk, water, coffee creamer...your choice)

Good luck with your June 4th cake (When I was married that was my anniversary date!) Janice
